THE NEWEST AND
MODEL WITH FAUCET
One with a faucet and one without. The faucet is handy to drain
out water or other liquid such as apple cider or ice tea for a crowd!
(We do not recommend heating milk directly in
the canner, and this could void the warranty). The faucet model also allows
you to easily drain hot water and add cold water, if you want to
use the unit to cool the milk. A unit full of
water weighs over 50#, so the faucet allows easy draining
without lifting if placed in an area to drain or fitted with a
rubber hose. The faucet model is our best seller! While it
does cost more, our users are always pleased with its
this unit is designed as a canner, here are some of the uses our
customers have reported!

- Heat treating colostrum
- Warming bottles of milk
- Making cheese
- Beer making
- Fudge making
- Candle making
- To dye fiber and fabrics (reported for wool
and other fibers as well as fabrics)
- Cooking large batches of soups and stews
- Holding foods at serving temperatures
- Chocolate melting
- Cheese or chocolate fondues
- Warming milk for separating out cream
- Thawing frozen foods
- Steaming foods
- Use in laboratories
- Serving drinks for a crowd - hot cider?
cold ice tea?

Both styles include a flat canning rack.
After a long time of searching and
trying different methods, we've found a wonderful product for dairy goat
operations! Made in Germany and designed as a water bath canner,
this gorgeous stainless steel pot can work hard for you every day
in many ways! With it's adjustable thermostat, this electric
unit can maintain constant temperatures anywhere from 80 to 220F.
You set the desired temperature, and it heats to that temperature and
holds - great for heat treating larger batches of colostrum (you can use jars, bags or even plastic soda
bottles)! It's heat resistant plastic base makes it safe to use on
countertops. Powerful 1380 watt heater works fast (110 volts)!
Here's the winner of our
Photo Contest ....Why the canner Is Best!!
Congratulations to Kathy
Evans and Susan Callahan! Also, we decided to award Jean Baugh a prize for her story
telling the horrors of trying to pasteurize on the stove!
A tired old, and Short
Lived Pasteurizer -
Rest In Peace!
What can happen when you
try pasteurizing on the stove!
The unit holds about 7 1/2 gallons of
liquid (designed for use as a water bat unit). We personally use a
13 quart stainless steel
pail, but you can use a wide variety of "inner units". Outside
height is 15". Interior height is 11 3/4", diameter 14", capacity 30 liters (32qt.). The original
model comes with a high-dome heat-resistant FDA-approved
plastic lid and the faucet model comes with
stainless steel lid. Another wonderful
feature is the auto shut-off that will prevent it from operating should
it run dry. Since it can maintain the constant temperature for
hours with no problem, you won't have to deal with overheated milk
and potential fires from leaving that pot of milk on the stove too long!
Also, you won't have to deal with pitted aluminum again! We
carried another popular "pasteurizer" for years, but it just seemed to
get higher in price, the thermostat wasn't reliable,
and it just didn't have a long life.
We feel the quality, functionality and durability of this unit far
surpasses those aluminum units that are available elsewhere. Hefty unit,
weighs around 25 pounds.
Comes with a full one-year warranty!
Note: The manufacturer honors the one year warranty when
used as a canner. Khimaira will personally honor a full
one year warranty even when used for other purposes, if unit has
not been damaged, dropped or abused (we may choose to repair or
replace). Heating milk directly in the canner can create
failure of the unit, and is not covered by warranty. If properly cared for, this unit should last for
many years. We have one that has been in daily use for
over 10 years, and it looks nearly new and still functions
superbly! It is important to clean the interior
periodically with an acid cleaner to remove any mineral build-up
that could impair efficient heating and operation. It is
very sturdy, and with reasonable care, it
will serve you well for years to come!
||Here is a batch of
colostrum that is heating perfectly in
the Canner. The insert shown is a 12 quart stainless
steel stockpot. Note the use of the thermometer, which we always
recommend. The lid fits over the entire unit, allowing
more efficient heating.
are using the 13 quart stainless steel bucket
(sold below) for pasteurizing. Note that the pail
fits totally within the unit, so we can use the lid to cover
the entire unit. Also, this style of pail has a bail which
rests on the top, rather than falling to the side, which keeps it
out of the hot water. In both pictures, the milk is resting on the
canning rack that is included with the Weck.
We now offer stainless steel buckets that can be used with
the canner. Quality stainless steel in 3 sizes!
Please note that the 16 quart pail does not allow the lid to
completely cover the unit (it sits slightly higher), but we are
offering it for our customers who want this capacity.
A tapered style allows fast and
complete water circulation for even heating. Bail rests on
top of the bucket, so there will be no hot handles to worry about!
Please allow 2 weeks delivery time.
NOTE: While we offer 3 sizes of buckets, it has been our
experience that the fastest processing has actually been with the
13 quart size. It allows for more water in the canner, thus
more space around the bucket. This also holds the
temperature of the water better for subsequent batches, and allows
for more rapid heating of the milk. Even though the capacity
is less, the net effect of heating the milk has been faster, in
our experience, on a per gallon basis. Anything smaller does
not seem to be as efficient. We've been using this method
for years, and it has proven to be "just right" for us.
